NEW Xbox console is revealed – and it’s coming out this year

Microsoft has announced a brand new Xbox One console for 2019.

Arguably Microsoft’s best looking Xbox One console yet, the new Xbox One X is themed after upcoming release Gears of War 5.

“Featuring the Omen submerged in ice and snow, the Xbox One X Gears 5 Limited Edition Bundle – the first Limited Edition Xbox One X since the Project Scorpio Edition – is designed by The Coalition and the Xbox Industrial Design Team,” reads a Microsoft post.

“Available for preorder today at participating retailers worldwide, including Microsoft Store, the Xbox One X Gears 5 Limited Edition console features a never-before-seen dark translucent casing and laser-etched cracks across the console’s icy top surface, with snow drifting across a golden Locust symbol on the back.”

Accompanying the new Xbox One X console is a brand new Gears 5 Kait Diaz Limited Edition controller, which features a similar colour scheme.

Fans who pick up the bundle will also receive a download code for the Gears 5 Ultimate Edition, as well as codes for Gears of War Ultimate Edition, Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3, and Gears of War 4.

You’ll even receive a one month trial for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass, as well as Ice Kait and Ice Jack Character skins for Gears 5.

And the licesnsed Gears 5 Xbox merchandise doesn’t stop with the new console and controller combo.

From September, Xbox fans can also pick up a brand new set of Gears 5 headphones from Razer.

“The best multiplayer sessions across these modes call for the best immersive audio experience like the Razer Thresher for Xbox One – Gears 5 Edition wireless headset,” Microsoft continues.

“With Windows Sonic for virtual surround sound for superior positional audio along with a lag-free wireless connection and digital microphone for crystal clear communication, the Razer Thresher for Xbox One – Gears 5 Edition headset provides a high-quality audio experience, so your game-winning callout to clinch the match with a Gnasher elimination doesn’t go unheard.”

Elsewhere, there’s a swish Gears 5-themed charging stand for the Xbox Wireless Controller, as well as an external hard drive and new mouse and keyboard combo.

“Get incredible precision on a ten keyless keyboard with an inbuilt mouse mat, paired with a mouse featuring the acclaimed Razer 5G Advanced Optical Sensor,” Microsoft continues.

“With a 2.4 GHz Wireless Connection with Adaptive Frequency Technology and a single unified dongle for stable wireless transmission and performance and featuring an Xbox Dynamic Lighting and Razer Chroma to light up your living space, this keyboard and mouse will ensure you’re well equipped to survive on Sera.”

Gears 5 has a September 10 release date on Xbox One and Windows.
